This chuck comes from the same vendor who supplied them to SILCA pumps for more than 25 years. It makes a great replacement or addition if you are buying a new Stainless Presta chuck or CP1 Disc Adapter for your older pump. This part is made from nickel-plated brass and uses an o-ring to seal the connection. - Hose barb fits into all SILCA hoses both old and new - Threads onto Schrader valves and all SILCA chucks with male Schrader threads (17-4 Presta chuck, HIRO, and CP1 Disc Adapter) - All metal construction, nickel-plated brass
Years ago while Josh was working with the Team CSC at the Dauphine Libere, he noticed one of their mechanics using the most amazing little chuck to manage the disc wheel inflation. Unlike anything he had seen before, it was all metal and used a 'lollipop' lever on the side to lock onto the valve stems in disc wheels. The mechanic explained that these were made in Japan and were coveted by all the Euro-Pro mechanics due to their scarcity. So Josh set out to improve the design and make it available to cyclists everywhere. - Full metal construction, guaranteed for 25 years and covered by SILCAShield - Can effectively seal on valve stems as short as 10mm! - Uses SILCA 254 High-Tech Elastomer gasket - Adjustable gasket pre-load allows for a custom fit on any valve as well as compensation for gasket wear - Male Schrader thread fits into any Schrader chuck, or use SILCA Thread-On Schrader Adapter to fit a bare hose - Bullet-proof high-pressure, disc-compatible chuck for high-pressure situations.
The unique bright red gasket borrows from industries that require air-tight seals in the harshest of environments and tests to a life expectancy of more than 5X the carbon-filled rubber or Buna-N materials. The 252 gasket mates with a new compression head design allowing the user to tighten the gasket fit by nearly 200% with a simple twist of the cap. In tests with a major disc wheel manufacturer, the SILCA Disc Adapter literally blew away the field by posting a blow-off pressure of 393 psi, more than 3X the pressure achieved by any competing design. - CNC'd 6061 aluminum alloy construction - Knurled gripping surfaces - Threads into any Schrader pump head - Easily replaceable gasket
In a world where aluminum is used to replace brass for cost, and plastic is used to replace aluminum for cost, and so on, we felt the need to re-imagine this most iconic of cycling tools as an heirloom-quality objet d'art. The utmost care has been taken to machine the part using mono-crystalline diamond tooling to get the perfect surface finish, while the final feel of the part benefits from an investigation into more than 20 different styles and depths of knurl so that it will feel 'just-so' in your hands as it provides a lifetime of useful enjoyment. This is truly a tool you will hand down to your children and them in turn onto theirs. The Iconic SILCA Presta Only Head (formerly the 30.0) has been updated during its transition to American production. The highly efficient push-on design securely seals on Presta valves with no levers or buttons to operate. - Iconic Silca Presta Head Design: in use by more pro team and shop mechanics than any other! - 17-4 Stainless Material, 6X the strength and 2X the hardness of Brass - Full Synthetic Elastomer 242 Gasket with 5X the durability of traditional rubber materials - Pressure-amplifying dome geometry uses air pressure to clamp the valve stem - Schrader valve thread on hose side threads into any Schrader compatible hose attachment
Lever-locking design quickly attaches and forms a tight seal on all Schrader valves. Per Josh: "I first saw this type of chuck while traveling in Vietnam a few years ago. Throughout Vietnam you find tire repair stations along the roadside, and I was continually amazed to see them use large tire irons to manually install truck and car tires, often having 2 or 3 people stand on the tire sidewall while another person used the lever to pull those last few inches of bead over the rim. Then I watched as they attached the locking Schrader chuck onto the valve, placed the entire wheel around the corner of the building, and inflated it from the other side of the wall! When I inquired about the chuck with the shop owner he told me 'Expensive, but worth it!' as it allowed his employees to inflate truck tires to very high pressures from a safe distance. I wanted to bring that same simplicity to the market. - Environmentally friendly electroless nickel-plated brass and stainless steel construction - Fits all 1/4 and 6mm pneumatic hose - Connects much faster than thread on type chucks and disconnects instantly with no air loss from the valve
